Mini is elevating the electric driving experience with the introduction of the John Cooper Works (JCW) treatment for the new electric version of the Cooper hardtop. This marks a significant milestone as it is the first time a Mini EV has received the coveted JCW badge. However, diverging from the path of its gas-powered counterparts, the 2025 Cooper SE JCW doesn’t receive a boost in power. Instead, it embraces its role as an appearance package, enhancing the sporty persona of the vehicle both inside and out.
The JCW package is exclusively available with the more potent powertrain option of the Cooper Electric—the SE version boasting 215 horsepower and a 54.2-kWh battery pack.
The exterior receives a distinctive JCW body kit featuring a rear diffuser, a revamped front grille, and vibrant red accents, mirror caps, and hood stripes adorning the roof. Complementing the look are 18-inch wheels and eye-catching red brake calipers. Inside the cabin, the sporty theme continues with seats adorned in red stitching and scattered checkered flag patterns.
While Mini has yet to unveil the detailed U.S. lineup for the 2025 Cooper Hardtop, the availability of the JCW trim level for the electric version in the States remains unconfirmed.
However, Mini assures enthusiasts that a JCW variant of the gas-powered Mini Cooper will be part of the lineup, promising a power upgrade beyond the standard turbo engines. Those seeking a Mini JCW with the performance to match its aesthetics are directed towards the internal combustion version. On the other hand, if the appeal of a sporty appearance suffices, the electric variant stands ready to deliver.
